TRENTON - As the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks approaches this weekend, a new poll shows that most people around New Jersey won't do anything special to mark the day.
A Monmouth University/NJ Press Media poll out today found that nearly a third of New Jersey residents think about the attacks on a regular basis. However, only one in four plan to observe the occasion; of those, 14 percent say they'll attend a public ceremony.
Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, says the poll also shows that while most people think it's important to build a new tower at the World Trade Center location, as time has passed, they no longer feel it's especially crucial.
Just under half of New Jersey residents feel that the country is now safer from terrorism than it was prior to the attacks, while 19 percent say it is less safe. Another 35 percent say the U.S. is no more or no less safe from terrorism than it was 10 years ago.
